As January twenty third approaches — the shared birthdate of Saint Lucia’s two Nobel Laureates – the planned national program is predicted to achieve its ultimate high on that Sunday, when several activities will commemorate the birthdays of Sir Arthur Lewis and Honourable Derek Walcott.
A Sunday highlight can be the screening of the production ‘Pandemic Diaries’, a documentary play presented by the Creative and Performing Arts Club of the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College (SALCC), via Facebook, YouTube and native TV stations from 6 pm to 7 pm.
Various entities have staged and sponsored different activities on the national calendar, including the SALCC, which hosted the Sir Arthur Lewis Memorial Lecture on January 20, delivered by Dr. Gervan Fearon, President of Brown College in Toronto, Canada.
The SALCC also hosted the annual wreath-laying ceremony for Lewis and Walcott, each buried throughout the grounds of the faculty, followed by an Open House on the Derek Walcott Library.
SALCC’s final Nobel Laureate memorial 2022 event can be on January 28, when the WORRRD-UP Poetry Slam will happen on the National Cultural Center, featuring eight young poets.
